The Spice of Life (or TSOL, to fans) follows Jake Furie Lapin, a 37-year-old sexaholic and loving Dom. As the first book in a three-part series, TSOL explores Jake’s transformation from a submissive, out-of-shape man, stuck in a sexless marriage, to a strong, successful, fit, loving Dom. This first book follows Jake as he describes his many sexual adventures, in great detail, to Kelli, his sex therapist. Kelli Lemberg is a successful sex therapist who has an office-based practice in Manhattan. Like Jake, Kelli finds herself trapped in a marriage that is lacking heat and passion. Through her sex therapy sessions with Jake, Kelli begins to undergo an amazing transformation of her own, as she uncovers and explores the depths of her own inner sexuality and sensual fire.

The Spice of Life is a dom book. Jake Furie Lapin is one of the main characters in the book. He is the dom who meets a woman who happens to be a sex therapist. He begins seeing her as a therapist. He tells how he was a submissive, out of shape, and in a sexless marriage. Kelli, the therapist, is also in a sexless marriage and gets turned on listening to Jake tell his stories to her.
This book does show a man being a submissive and dom in a good way. It also gives in detail of some of the interactions on how he became the man he is. Kelli was not left out in the detailing. Her story is similar to Jake’s but she is not a dom by any means. Her husband is kind of a douche too. Just saying.
I did like this book but I felt like I needed more on some of the stories Jake did tell. I feel like I didn’t get some closure to them. I’m hoping that the second book will maybe explain more so I can get a feel on him. It was written well and I really am intrigued to get the next one.
I am giving this book 4 hearts.
